The Friday Funnies

Say what you will about the campaign this year, but funny is not an adjective that's been coming up a lot. Sure, some things have been fairly comical, but those are mostly unintentional. We haven't really seen anything that's outright funny.

Maybe the tide is shifting on that, or maybe I'm just catching up, but there's two web videos you should definitely watch if you haven't already.

First, Paris Hilton released a video response to John McCain's celebrity ad. It's not exactly biting satire or anything (I mean, what do you really expect from her), but you've got to love a video with the line, "Thanks for the endorsement white haired dude."

Then, there's Jib Jab's video, Time for Some Campaignin'. The highlight here is Obama in a Disney-fied forest surrounded by rainbows and singing animals as he rides a unicorn and sings "The change we must change is the change we hold dear. I really like change. Have I made myself clear?"

As the campaigns themselves get more and more ridiculous, it's nice to know that not everyone is taking it so seriously.
